Hopefully that will change as things settle into a new routine. For now I'm giving myself a little bit of grace as we adapt.
|a recent page I've been puttering away at slowly and thoughts about my new job role...|
Ironically I feel like the biggest adaptation has more to do with my changing job situation than the actual new schedule. Before I left for maternity leave, my boss pretty much royally screwed me over in a way that I have never experienced before professionally. It was a huge source of bitterness and strife for me, particularly given that I couldn't really file a complaint because nothing was official until I returned from mat leave, at which point it would be too late.
I'll leave the background info at that.
Suffice to say, returning to work has been challenging because I was walking into a very different work environment. At the same time, while I'm frustrated by the uncertainty of my role, I'm also excited by the possibilities ahead. New ideas for my job duties are incredibly exciting and have ended up turning what was a contentious job change and turned it into an interesting blessing of sorts.
I love it when life works out that way.
Now, to find balance in it all, that is the task ahead...
